A Ford City man jumped to his death from the Judge J. Frank Graff Bridge on Wednesday morning.

Paul Watson, 56, jumped from the bridge about 10:30 a.m., landing near Garretts Run Road, according to Armstrong County Deputy Coroner Brian Myers.

“A couple of people passing by witnessed him do it,” Myers said. “They were the ones who called in.”

Watson died instantly, Myers said.

The bridge, which runs over the Allegheny River between Manor and North Buffalo townships, carries state Routes 28 and 422.
